Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
“Obama policies kill Obama values: if you dither and appease while Russia turns Syria into a charnel house, your commitment to humane treatment of refugees will collapse under the human catastrophe resulting from your fecklessness.”
Okay, technically it’s not true. Obama’s policies were expressly designed to fundamentally transform America from the nation I grew up loving into a generic second-tier former imperial power like England, France, Spain or Italy. Sadly, he largely succeeded.
But the quip works if you replace “Obama” with “Liberal” because then you get: “Liberal policies kill Liberal values.”
Welfare intended to help families, disintegrated families.
Student loans intended to create an educated populace where students succeed, leave students ignorant and bankrupt.
Obamacare intended to make health insurance affordable, made it unaffordable.
Holy cow – this could become another Berg’s Law.
I have a hunch it’s going to be a big year for Berg’s Laws – old and new.
